InCommOn’s approach of addressing urban issues is holistic, emphasises circularity, and is based on the following three pillars:
We are against any form of social exclusion based on age, gender, sexual orientation, race, religious faith, disability, social and economic standing. Non-discrimination is not only a principle reflected in our our hiring process and internal work protocols but we also actively promote equality and social inclusion in the projects that we organize for, and, alongside the communities that we work with.
Addressing complex and challenging urban crises does not only depend on the state or private companies but requires active citizens who will bring attention to their neighborhoods’ problems, mobilize people and resources, and campaign for change. Lack of engagement with the commons renders any urban problem more acute and we therefore make a point to promote active citizenship in our projects.
Global urban growth has led to the accumulation of tremendous amounts of waste and pollution and to an ever-growing number of premature deaths, poverty, serious environmental disruption, and overall poor quality of life. Our goal is to tackle environmental degradation, achieve greener and cleaner natural surroundings, and make more livable the urban environment οf the communities that we work in.
It is part of a wider multicircular economy system that involves exchanging used coffee grounds from local cafés with “staramakia” (natural wheat straws)to replace plastic straws. In this way we can maximise the community participation and awareness on both the issues of organic waste over-production and the over-consumption of single use plastics.
